The Sharp Owl.. Only Bigger

Wow!  Thanks everyone for all the comments on my last post.  I really did have a lot of fun with the Faber-Castell products, and I ordered a few more colors.  And the little page from my Art Journal turned into something bigger - and I think much better.  I finally enlarged one of my favorite stamps.  The Sharp Owl - and then I created a journal for my daughter.  An idea book of sorts, you know all the great things an 8 year old can think of.

The background was a lot of fun to make.  Just color up the paper with the aquarelles and then paint over it with water.  I never would have choose this color palette, but I think the owl looks great with it.  But I'm going to try again when I get my blues and greens!  And the gellatos add texture and depth.  So artistic!  Ha ha!

More owly stuff coming up.  I have an order for two Christmas ornaments, and a surprise project by a guest designer...  hoot hoot!
